Tucked into the corner of Uganda’s border with Sudan and Kenya, the park offers breathtaking savannah landscapes which end in a rugged horizon. A huge latitudinal range and correspondingly wide climatic conditions have evolved an extremely diverse flora, as a result the variety of animal species in the park is abundant. The vegetation can best be described as open tree savannah that varies much in structure and composition.


Mountain forest dominates some of the high places, while areas along the Lorupei River supports dense acacia geradi forest. Wildlife in Kidepo is abundant ; Lions, Leopard, Cheetah, Elephant, Giraffe, Zebra and Uganda’s largest herds of buffalo, hartebeest, waterbuck, bushbuck and warthog…..the list goes on. The safari vehicles are the best way to see the wildlife up close but walking safaris are also possible.
